Unelected Group of People

If you need any more information regarding the Regime that is the Obama Administration’s his latest use of third-world politics in his threat” aimed at the Supreme Court;

“I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”

2011 Top Ten News Stories

I hesitate to call my list “news stories” because many of them have not been covered by the Obama-media because they would make the liberal administration look like the miserable failure that it has been.  On with the list.

  1. The Economy:  If you look past the cheerleading reporting that the recession is over and jobs are being created, and a falling unemployment percent, you might just see how bad things still are.  I don’t remember a time where I have sweated my employment for so long.  I am not consumed, but the gnawing feeling is always there in the background.  As of November 2011 the U6 Unemployment (U-6 = Total unemployed, plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force) rate is 15.6 percent. 

Are You Ready For Some Pressure

Few things are more iconic than Hank Williams, Jr singing “Are you ready for some football” before every Monday Night Football game.  Long after you’ve forgotten the score the jingle still resonates in your memory.  ESPN took the bold step of suspending their use of the famous tune because of some comments by Williams, Jr.made about President Obama.  It seems that Hank in not too fond of the policies of Obama and had the temerity to voice his disdain on Fox News.  That’s probably a double whammy; saying something negative about Obama and doing it on Fox News.  I can understand ESPN’s desire to avoid getting political as a sports channel, but I suspect that the issue may go a little deeper.  Perhaps they don’t want to come under pressure from one of Obama’s federal agencies…

Parsimony – Boeing Blast

In “Parse-imony” I break down current news stories with my pithy, running commentary…

First the headline…

Drug raid nets dozens at Philadelphia Boeing factory

…and the story

PHILADELPHIA — Federal agents on Thursday raided a Boeing [second mention of their name] plant that makes military helicopters in a Philadelphia suburb and charged more than three dozen people with distributing or trying to get prescription drugs, among them powerful painkillers. [remember that the Obama Administration’s Labor Department has an ongoing dispute with Boeing]

The OBA Administration

I’d like to suggest that the Obama Administration be renamed the OBA Administration or the Obama Back-Assward Administration.  When most of us have a problem we try to find and fix using logic.  For instance, my car was having some trouble starting so I had the battery and alternator checked.  If I were to act like the Obama Back-Assward Administration, I would probably have my key checked.  It would be funny except that these folks are “running” the country or should I say “ruining” the country…

Boeing Boeing Gone

I have not had the opportunity to see the movie interpretation of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged (i.e. the closest theater is about an hour away), but it feels more and more like I am living the story.  I’ve read the novel twice since my first time when I was awakened bythe vultures depicted by Rand.   It was hard to be disgusted by a parasitic nation that sucks the life out of productive people to prolong their reign.  It is hard to watch former great companies like Jack Welch’s General Electric mooch off of Obama to gain favor for their subsidiaries while, in my mind, pretending to be a capitalist company.  Businesses have always done this, but the level of government interference seems obscene.
